The 2022 GMC Terrain introduces a full model refresh, dropping in as the fifth model year for the current second-generation nameplate. Notably, the 2022 GMC Terrain incorporates two separate headlight designs, with the top Denali trim level offering its own unique headlight design.
Comparing the two headlights side-by-side, we see that the non-Denali 2022 GMC Terrain trim levels incorporate a headlight design with three projector-style inner lighting elements, as well as darker inner detailing between the lighting elements. By comparison, the headlights on the 2022 GMC Terrain Denali incorporate two projector-style inner lighting elements, plus clear / chrome inner detailing between the lighting elements.
To note, the non-Denali 2022 GMC Terrain trim levels include the SLE, SLT, and AT4.
Despite the obvious headlight design differences between the 2022 GMC Terrain Denali and the rest of the lineup, the headlights all have the same product description (LED with C-shaped lighting), as well as the same RPO code (T4L). The functionality is also identical across the trim level range.
Interestingly, these stylistic changes for the 2022 GMC Terrain Denali’s headlights are not unlike those for the 2022 Buick Enclave. As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 Buick Enclave Avenir is offered with the Avenir Technology package, which includes, among other things, Avenir-specific headlights. That said, the headlights equipped by the 2022 GMC Terrain Denali are not specific to a package, but rather, are included with the Denali trim level in general.
Beyond the exterior styling bits, the 2022 GMC Terrain features just one engine option, namely the turbocharged 1.5L LYX gasoline engine, which is rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. Output is routed through the GM 9-speed automatic transmission. Providing the bones is the GM D2 platform, with production taking place at the GM San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico.
